Michelle Obama and Jason Wu are a match made in heaven. For her second inaugural ball on Jan. 21, 2013, the First Lady collaborated with the same fashion designer who created her show-stopping look four years earlier. At the Southern Regional Inaugural Ball at the D.C. Armory in January 2009, the 49-year-old mother of two wore a custom one-shoulder, floor-length white chiffon gown by Wu. "I was over the moon," the then-fledgling designer told The New York Times. "I know I am an unusual choice for a first lady. I didn't think it was my turn yet"/Zach Johnson, Us Weekly. More here.

Question: Were you wowed by the First Lady's dress & style at Inaugural Ball, too?
